Very Nice Gesture
When a Stone Park police officer was killed in a motorcycle accident, friends and fellow officers decided to hold a car raffle to help raise money for his family.
A Chicago policeman won the car, but he didn't keep it.
It's the [story] of a community pitching in to help the family of a fallen police officer, also a police officer doing what he could to try to help that family as well.
Mike Scali, a police officer in Chicago's 18th district, won a brand new Ford Focus in a raffle. Rather than driving it home, he decided to turn it over to Anna, whose husband was killed in March in a motorcycle crash. He'd been an officer for seven years. The raffle raised $16,000, all of which went to the family.
